Home to the famous Caminito alleyway gallery and La Bombonera football stadium, La Boca has a reputation forged on two major tourist attractions. Make your way straight to Caminito and appreciate the dazzling colors of the buildings around you, then head to the stadium for a behind-the-scenes tour.

Use our Buenos Aires day trip tool to arrange your visit to La Boca and other attractions in Buenos Aires.
